Home prices still falling in Utah's metropolitan areas

According to information released by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, home prices have yet to bottom-out in Utah's various Metropolitan Statistical Areas. Compared to prices a year ago, St. George MSA prices are down almost 18 percent, prices in the Provo-Orem MSA are down 13 percent and the Salt Lake City MSA prices are down about 10 percent. Both the Ogden-Clearfield MSA (down 6 percent) and the Logan MSA (down 3.4 percent) show slower home price declines.
